Herodes Atticus Odeon Athens

Herodes Atticus (A.D. 101-177) was a Greek rhetorician, philosopher, teacher and was elected archon (ruler) of Athens. He was also a very wealthy man, allegedly due to the great fortune his father had discovered in one of his estates.


The "Herodes Atticus Odeon", more commonly known as the "Herodeion", is one of many contributions Herodes offered in his own expense to adorn Athens and was erected in memory of his wife Rigillee, in A.D. 161.


The Odeon was restored in 1955 and has since been used to stage various concerts and events that take place in the summer months.
